Composting Cooperative of North Hempstead
Today, the use of composting to turn organic wastes into a valuable resource is expanding rapidly in the United States. As landfill space becomes scarce and expensive, and as people become more aware of the impacts they have on the environment, in ten years composting will be as commonplace as recycling.

It is the way to recycle yard and kitchen waste, and is a critical step in reducing the volume of garbage needlessly sent to landfills for disposal. Composting could remove more than 15 percent from the solid waste stream, if everyone participated.
The North Hempstead Composting Cooperative
Is educating the community and creating awareness on the importance and the ease of composting. The Town of North Hempstead has purchased the composters and will charge the residents the nominal fee of $50.00 including a composting class at the Clark Botanic Gardens Facility.
